RON HELUS

It’s hard. In fact, it’s impossible to explain what led to the Borderline Bar and Grill attack a year ago. How do you make sense of the senseless? There were many heroes that night. People in the club broke out windows to help people escape, and carried injured friends and stranger to safety. But, while more than 200 people were trying to flee from danger, a Ventura County Sheriff’s Sergeant was intentionally running into it.

It was an emotional day Wednesday for family members, friends, and members of the law enforcement community as a ceremony was held to honor the Ventura County Sheriff’s sergeant who died in the Borderline Bar And Grill Attack. It was a day to remember Ventura County Sheriff’s Sergeant Ron Helus.
